OK! So I'm going back a bit on this post but I haven't been here for a bit.
That is Lonicera sempervirens. I
I've always just called it scarlet honeysuckle. It's a vine but an older one will pile up like a shrub. It starts super easy with layering, cuttings or hardwood cutting in winter.
It's not aggressive like the Japanes honeysuckle and doesn't have any scent but the hummers love it.
Lucy, that's what you have. :wink:
